Completely Unbranded Silver Cased Gentleman's Wristwatch with Unique Flip Out Mechanism Spares or Repairs

Trench watches, also known as "wristlets" during their initial phase, are early wristwatches that emerged during World War I. They represent a significant transition from pocket watches to wristwatches and are notable for their unique design characteristics tailored to the needs of soldiers in the trenches.

What's on Offer

A head-scratcher for us at VWS, we're not quite sure exactly who made this watch. It features a complete sterling silver-hinged flip-out case, most likely used as a shock protection system. These types of watches were purposely designed for use on the battlefield. Inside of the case sits a small square watch head. The dial is beautifully aged and textured with a small sub-second dial at 6.

Unfortunately, this watch is not running how it should be. We are selling this watch for a valued client of ours and it has not been serviced before its arrival. We are selling it as seen but would be happy to get it serviced for you if you wish us to do so. These circumstances are reflected in the price.
